Cybersecurity is the backbone safeguarding patient data, operational continuity, and, ultimately, patient safety. It's critical due to the industry's heavy reliance on interconnected systems, electronic health records, and cutting-edge medical technologies. Protecting this sensitive data is pivotal to prevent breaches that could compromise patient privacy or even lives.
Cyber threats have been on a relentless rise, with staggering numbers indicating the magnitude of the problem. According to a Norton report:
  • Global cybercrime costs are expected to reach $10.5 trillion annually by 2025;
  • In 2020, the FBI received more than 2,000 internet crime complaints per day;
  • And the healthcare industry is expected to spend $125 billion on cybersecurity from 2020 to 2025.
What solutions are out there? What are the best practices? Explore pivotal subjects such as unified cybersecurity approaches, secure software and medical device integration strategies, and invaluable firsthand insights on hospitals' smooth transition to the cloud, guided by our esteemed panel of speakers who brought unparalleled expertise to the forefront:
  • Diego Gomes, Senior Solutions Architect | AWS
  • Jéssica Costa Domingues, Head of Cybersecurity Unit | SPMS
